From 25th to 27th May 2022, the working team of CREA DC in Milan coordinated by Anna Giulini and Giovanni Corsi organized the 15th EU-VCU 2022 Seminar entitled “New aspects of sustainability in the context of VCU tests for the registration of varieties” at the castle of Sant’Angelo Lodigiano (LO).
During the congress, the European delegates showed the research and development activities carried out in their country in order to evaluate the sustainability criteria among the varieties registration activities, highlighting the widespread interest on the characterization of varieties in terms ofnresistance to biological agents and for organic farming. In this framework the InnoVar team showed the preliminary results of the VCU trial carried out in the season 20-21 concerning the additional measurement of some vegetation indices (RGB images, SPAD and LAI). Moreover, we also showed our VCU field 21-22 trial.
